Remember the days up until the 991.1 Porsche 911 Carrera (S), when these base model were naturally aspirated? Well, those times are now behind us and, as far as the exhaust sound is concerned, not only has the 991.2 turbo switch affected the decibels, but the Gas Particle Filter of the 992 means the voice of the flat-six is even less bold. Of course, the aftermarket side of the industry is glad to make the eighth-generation Neunelfer more vocal.
In fact, we are now here to check out one of the first examples of a modded 992, with the Carrera S we have here having gifted with a custom exhaust supplied by Capristo.

We're talking about a valved muffler approved by the ECE (Economic Commission for Europe), as well as 200cps sport catalytic converters. Oh, and you should know this hardware doesn't require one to play with the ECU of the sportscar.

You'll be able to sample the newfound voice of this 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S in the brief piece of footage below. However, one can never rely on phone videos for a proper soundcheck.

Heck, even clips shot with a proper setup can deprive an audiophile of the complete sensation, as, for instance, I noticed while holding a rev battle between the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and the Lamborghini Huracan Evo, but this is another story for another time.

Returning to the Zuffenhausen machine that brought us here, tuners will undoubtedly come up with more aggressive setups, even though there's only so much one can do when the setup of such a TT flat-six needs to remain streetable.

Fortunately for those who can't live without the aural delight of a naturally aspirated motor, Porsche is keeping the atmospheric boxer alive. We've already met the German carmaker's new 4.0-liter N/A engine on the 718 Cayman GT4/Spyder, with this being loosely based on the heart of the 992 Carrera S mentioned above.

And things will only get better next year, when the 992 Porsche 911 GT3 is expected to make its debut.
